MEP not allowed to attend hockey championship in Belarus


Migalski and his colleagues had to stay at the Belarusian border until morning waiting for another train to return to Poland.

The MEP is known for his bold comments on the human rights situation in Belarus and is an active adherent of strict measures as regards the Belarusian regime. The MEP also conducted a championship boycott campaign due to repressions exercised on the Belarusian opposition.

Head of the Swedish human rights organization Östgruppen Martin Uggla was not allowed to enter Belarus for the championship earlier.
